Bernard aubertin was one of the most radical authors of the early 1960s. After the fateful cognition of the work of yves klein, the artist devotes himself to painting monochromes and creating works with fire. His reliefs with burning matches have rightly attracted the attention of critics and avant-garde colleagues. Aubertin takes part at most of the important exhibitions of the zero group, and his interest in the fire and its destructive, yet metamorphological abilities have not left the artist until the end of his life.
The artist was born in 1932 and died in 2015 in Reutlingen (Germany)
